In Your Hands by Ines Pedrosa

Set in Portugal across decades beginning in 1935 we have a marriage which is rather unusual - Jenny gets married to Antonio but there is always Pedro as the third wheel in the marriage. Holding political salons and entertainment Pedro is much more important to Antonio than Jenny will ever be, but for appearances sake the facade is maintained always.

Fast forward thirty years and we have Camila now a headstrong young woman who reminisces about a love in Mozambique and who also bequeathed to her a daughter Natalija.

Three women's stories told across the generations, each with plenty of secrets and convoluted as thy come each of the women's stories are unique to their time and age.

Interesting background setting of turbulent Portugal and three strong determined women trying to set their mark.

I've never thought of Portugal as turbulent so I think I'd find the setting fascinating.

Not sure this one's for me, though Portugal sounds interesting as a setting.
